AMARO CANO, María del Carmen. Luis Díaz Soto, a man of science and conscience, on his 110th Anniversary. Rev Cub Med Mil [online]. 2015, vol.44, n.1, pp.139-145. ISSN 0138-6557.

An overview of the brief and fruitful life of Luis Díaz Soto (1904-1958), is provides on the 110th anniversary of his birth, as a testimony of admiration and respect for his memory. He founded the Charity Law Center of Cuban Workers and he was one of the best hospital directors in Cuba. He joined the ranks of the Popular Socialist Party when he was very young. He participated with the Spanish people in their struggle for freedom during civil war (1936-1939), where he attained the rank of Captain of the Republican Army in the Abraham Lincoln International Brigade. His commitment to his country, as well as freedom and social justice attitude, he has served as paradigm to young generations, especially military doctors, who have imitated his example and perpetuated his name at Central Military Hospital located in the municipality of Habana del Este.
